‘Star’ Episode Guide (March 15): Star Deals with the Fallout of Hunter’s Actions

“Showtime” Season 1 Finale (03/15/17) – Star is troubled as she deals with the aftermath of Hunter’s actions, while Derek and Alex struggle to make an important decision about their future. With Atlanta NextFest quickly approaching, the girls are putting the finishing touches on their routine.

Will it be enough or will this be the end of their musical dream? Carlotta is determined to mend broken relationships, while Jahil tries to get back in the good graces of the girls in the season finale episode of “Star” airing Wednesday, March 15 (9:01-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Guest starring in this episode are Big Boi as himself; Miss Lawrence as Miss Bruce; Chad James Buchanan as Hunter Morgan; and Sharlene Taule as Eva.

Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Lee Daniels – creator and executive producer of broadcast’s No. 1 series, “Empire” – partners with Tom Donaghy (“The Whole Truth”) to pull back the curtain on music’s gritty and dark reality in “Star.”

Featuring a soundtrack of original music and stunning music performances, “Star” follows three talented singers – running from their pasts and desperate for a new start – with ambitions of stardom, as they navigate the cut-throat music business on their road to success. But reality soon dawns on the girls’ fantasies, and they start to learn that ambition often comes at a cost.

Meet Star (newcomer Jude Demorest), a tough-as-nails young woman, who came up in the foster care system and decides one day to take control of her destiny. Star tracks down her sister, Simone (newcomer Brittany O’Grady), and her Instagram bestie, Alexandra (newcomer Ryan Destiny), and together, the trio journeys to Atlanta with the hope of becoming music superstars.

Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award, Grammy Award and Golden Globe Award winner Queen Latifah (“Bessie,” “Bringing Down The House”) stars as Carlotta, a surrogate mother to the young crew that includes Cotton (newcomer Amiyah Scott).

Emmy Award nominee Benjamin Bratt (“24: Live Another Day,” “Law & Order”) plays Jahil, a down-on-his-luck talent agent looking to revitalize his career, who’s taken a certain interest in Star. The series will also feature guest star and Grammy Award winner Lenny Kravitz (“Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” “The Hunger Games”).

“Star” is a production of 20th Century Fox Television in association with Lee Daniels Entertainment. Lee Daniels and Tom Donaghy are the creators and executive producers of the series. Charles Murray will serve as executive producer and showrunner for the series. Pamela Oas Williams and Effie Brown also serve as executive producers.
